I too would like to get advice on how to re-enter the job force after taking a year off.
Unfortunately, I took a year off of work for personal reasons (2 deaths within 8 months). I've listed "Career break" and included a statement with dates. Additionally, following the advice of many job boards, I've tried to adjust my resume according to the job description for each position that I apply to but, all I get is 'thank you, but 'no thank you' letters. I have more than 10 years of HR experience and welcome ANY advice as to how I can return to the workforce doing what I love which is HR! Thank you in advance for your suggestions.
